My main research interest is in databases. I am a member of the Oxford Database Group. Current research projects:

  • Factorised databases: FDB
  • Probabilistic databases: SPROUT (query evaluation techniques), MayBMS (representation models, query languages), ENFrame (probabilistic programming), Pigora (probabilistic data integration)
  • Datalog engines: With folks@LogicBlox on their meta-engine, with Oxford colleagues on RDFox.

Past projects to which I contributed as student/co-investigator/principal investigator:

  • DIQOPT: Distributed Query Optimisation
  • G-Store: A Storage Manager for Graph Data
  • SKAR-DB: Managing Square-Kilometer-Array Data
  • SPEX: Streamed and Progressive Evaluation of XPath
  • Agora: Living with XML and Relational Data

Research support: Amazon; Astor Travel Fund; Cornell; Google; EPSRC (DBOnto, PROQAW, ADEPT); EU FP7 (FOX, HiperDNO); LogicBlox

I am looking for a postdoc and PhD students to join my team! Please contact me if you are interested.
